    Fans of Walt Disney World have been waiting to see exactly what was going to happen to the Hall of Presidents attraction at Magic Kingdom, and now, theyíll have to wait a bit longer. It is originally scheduled to reopen this upcoming week, but there has been a great concern as it appeared as if Donald Trump was not working the company to get it going, but now, there is a new reopening date and an update on whether the president is going to say a few words. The Hall of Presidents is a historical attraction at Magic Kingdom which...

    Marcella Arguello, a standup comedian and a writer for Bill Nye Saves The World on Netflix, tweeted in the wake of the Congressional baseball shooting that the deaths of ďa few old ass conservative white menĒ were a worthwhile risk if it led to gun control. The remarks, which Arguello subsequently deleted from her Twitter feed but can still be viewed in archived form, followed the shooting of U.S. Majority Whip Steve Scalise.

    From actor Chris Evans (Captain America) to director Joss Whedon, the Marvel Comics franchise is committing harikari in the most unbecoming of ways: through unapologetic, partisan bashing of a democratically elected president they canít stand. Evans has expressed deep contempt for what he considers to be in the ignorant masses of Americans that voted Donald Trump into the White House. These are, however, the very masses that make up the core viewership of Marvelís superhero movies. ďPeople were just so desperate to hear someone say that someone is to blame,Ē Evans said in a recent interview with Esquire magazine. ďThey...

    Even the most magical place on Earth isn't immune to President Donald Trump. Those familiar with Walt Disney World in Florida know that the park is home to an attraction called the Hall of Presidents. Inside, there are animatronic (read: robot) versions of every single president of the United States, ever. The problem? Ever since the Clinton administration, the sitting president's robotic stand-in has had a speaking role. According to Vice's Motherboard, Disney's Imagineers don't know how they can incorporate President Trump into what's supposed to be a celebration of American values with his "hateful speech, misogyny, racism, and xenophobia."...

    Walt Disney World's first water park, Disney River Country, closed 25 years after debuting in 1976. It has remained shut for more than 15 years. The park's pool was filled in with concrete last year. Seph Lawless, a Cleveland-based photographer whose work includes abandoned spaces like the inside of the vacant Chicago-area Lincoln Mall, took photos of the empty Disney River Country for a series available in his forthcoming book, "Autopsy of America: The Death of a Nation." You can check out more of Lawless' work on his website, YouTube channel and Instagram. CORRECTION (May 24, 2017, 10 a.m.): Disney...

    A decline in subscribers and higher programming costs at cash-cow ESPN weighed on shares of Walt Disney Co (DIS.N) on Tuesday, overshadowing a quarterly profit that topped Wall Street estimates. Investors have been closely watching how ESPN navigates the shakeup in television as viewers defect from traditional pay TV services and online services proliferate. Chief Executive Bob Iger told analysts that Disney added customers on new digital platforms, but not enough to make up for subscriber losses from expanded basic cable packages. Shares of the world's biggest entertainment company dropped 2.4 percent in after-hours trading.

    The MSNBC of sports ESPN used to be the crown jewel in the Disney Corporationís portfolio. It was thought to be the network cable subscribers couldnít - and wouldnít - live without, so it was a perennial cash-cow. Even if the movies, toys, and theme parks underperformed, ESPN could be counted on to generate mountains of Mouse-moolah. Maybe thatís why Keith Olbermannís twice-former network thought infusing sports coverage with ever-increasing levels of left-wing political content was a good move. After all, if the ratings are bulletproof, why not let the biased, poorly-informed, political opinions fly?

    ORLANDO, Fla. (WOFL FOX 35) - Disney executives emphasized the economic impact of the brand new attraction at Animal Kingdom called Pandora: World of Avatar. Not only has it created hundreds of new jobs but it would be more money that those new workers will put back into the local economy. ďWalt Disney World has 73,000 cast members today, serves as the largest single employer in the United States,Ē said Senior Vice President of Walt Disney World Parks Jim MacPhee. ďAll of those cast members live, work, and play here in Central Florida.

    Could Apple buy Disney? It would be a huge deal, worth hundreds of billions of dollars ó and that's what analysts are speculating about on Thursday. Research from RBC Capital Markets says such a merger would produce a "tech/media juggernaut like no other" ó the combination of the biggest tech company in the world and a near-century-old cultural titan. "The resultant company would be massive, with enough cash and balance sheet capacity to change the nature of the hardware, service, and content industries," the analysts wrote in a note to investors....

    Beauty and the Beast is joining the billion-dollar club at the worldwide box office. Director Bill CondonĎs update of DisneyĎs classic 1991 animated film likely will achieve the milestone by Thursday. (The entry of The Fate of the Furious in a handful of foreign markets on Wednesday is clouding the forecast.) On Tuesday, Beauty, starring Emma Watson as Belle, grossed $9.7 million for a worldwide total of $993.2 million. The tentpole has earned $435.9 million domestically and $557.3 million overseas, led by China ($85.2 million) and the U.K. ($75.3 million). Disney has plenty of reason to celebrate. Beauty and the...

    In Indonesia, 212 is the number used to denote a specific mass protest from 2nd December last year. Hundreds of thousands of Muslims marched against the Christian governor of Jakarta, Basuki Tjahaja Purnama, known as Ahok, over allegations of blasphemy regarding his use of the Quíran in campaigning against opponents. The march was organised, in part, with the National Movement to Safeguard the Indonesian Ulema Councilís Fatwa. It was pretty hardline conservative and the protest demanded the government prosecute and jail Ahok based on the councilís fatwa, declaring him to be a blasphemer.

    As reported extensively by Breitbart News, ESPN has suffered severe losses in cable subscriptions over the last few years, the repercussion of which will rear its ugly head in the form of significant cutting of on-air talent in the near future. According to comments made Thursday by ESPNís Jim Miller on SI Media Podcast with Richard Deitsch, dozens of employees will soon join the unemployment lines. ďThe way that Iíve heard itóand Iíve kind of run the numbers on it, I think weíre looking at between 40 and 50 people,Ē Miller said. ďAnd look, thereís a lot of uncertainty about...

    Having bought premium tickets in advance of the "gay moment" revelation, I ended up seeing Disney's remake of Beauty and the Beast. No point in wasting good money over an alleged 2-second problem in a 2-hour movie. FWIW, I saw the standard-format 2D version. WARINING: SPOILERS. Not that you're really going to find them spoiling, since you already know the story and the hysteria, but if you're worried about spoilers anyway then stop here already. Overall, it was a worthy remake of the hit animated film we all recall. The new generation is growing up with photorealistic animation (vs hand-drawn...
